Porcelain Legionnaire Discussion
3 days ago
4xMana Leak, 3x Smother, 3xPorcelain Legionnaire (which is ofen played as a 2-drop), 1x Agony Warp This is 11 cards dedicated to surviving the early game. On top of that there are the Detention Spheres and the Scourglass, which can potentially be dropped on turn 3.

Nice list! I built a similar list a while back that focused more on Equipment and less so metalcraft.
Have you considered Porcelain Legionnaire? Super aggressive drop that's an artifact to boot.

Thanks Hc_Clan!! The Porcelain Legionnaire and the Lantern Kami was both cards that never get very useful in the main deck, now you tell me, i can see it better, i took off both of them and put Mind Stone and Junkyo Bell found this card on an old COK sealed Booster and I think that goes in the deck perfect, lot of times I have TONS of creatures and only attack with Gisela so, BOOM.
Im VERY thankful of your help. :) have nice Deckbuilding too!
PS:I totally NEED the Immortal Sun from RIX haha.

Hey Dr.Crust, I like this build! I like the use of flagbearer-type cards to keep the hate away from Gisela.
A few recommendations I have is that I'm confused about a couple of card choices. If this is a voltron deck, what are Porcelain Legionnaire or Lantern Kami doing to help you achieve that goal? I would recommend increasing the amount of card draw in the deck by using artifacts like Staff of Nin, Tamiyo's Journal and the newly-spoiled Immortal Sun from RIX. It may increase your curve but at 3.1 you may have some room to spare depending on your meta. If aggro is a problem, Ghostly Prison is a great card and I can see has been mentioned before.
In my Bruna deck, I'm able to keep a lot of cards in my hand by spending a lot of my mana on recurring stuff from the graveyard to get more value out of those cards. That's the goal of that deck so I run cards like Emeria Shepherd, Sun Titan and Emeria, The Sky Ruin.
Also, I highly recommend Endless Horizons it's such an excellent enchantment and helps you make sure you always get your land drops.
Happy deck building!

That makes sense. My favourite thing against Vexing Devil is Porcelain Legionnaire, works every time. But in your deck, the Sphere seems legit, and The Blade is the best removal spell in the world in such a circumstance. I've found that Necropotence is amazing in most combo decks, but I like Dark Confidant just because it's just so fun and cheap, plus, it's a creature (if that means anything to you). Maybe run a Damnation or two. It's up to you, mah duder, so far it looks pretty baller.

Porcelain Legionnaire Would be king in this deck as a 2 of. With tempered steel out it eats tasigur, angler, goyf and most other threats in the format. For "2" mana.

Smuggler's Copter is pretty risky in this deck. You aren't casting madness and nothing has flashback to really make it effective. I would exchange it and Reckless Bushwhacker for 4 Cranial Plating and 4 Puresteel Paladin. Then I would cut Springleaf Drum and Welding Jar completely and drop in another Court Homunculus. I would consider exchanging Toolcraft Exemplar for Porcelain Legionnaire too. Too often, decks will control you and Toolcraft Exemplar won't be much more than an annoyance. At least legionnaire has no strings attached and can be cast for two mana and . Hope that helps.

You need the artifacts to ramp and keep up.
Porcelain Legionnaire he doesn't do anything for you in this list
Chief Engineer: you aren't playing enough artifcats
Puresteel Paladin: again, not enough to utilize him
Stonehewer Giant: ditto
Trinket Mage: ditto
Steel Hellkite: you have better options in what I gave you
Wall of Denial: eh.
Skullclamp: I don't even know if this is legal, keep it if you add elspeth and other stuff that will allow you to utilize it
Cloudshift: kind of meh
Survival Cache: not as good
These are the one's staring me in the face
